3 Proposed Designs for DTLA Stadium. Which Do You Prefer?

It was a big reveal late yesterday afternoon as AEG showed the three competing designs for a new stadium to go on the LA Live campus. The call for designs was made in early November, explains Blogdowntown, and specified that the submitted proposal would be for a 72,000 seat stadium with over 200 suites. Building the new stadium necessitates the clearing of two hurdles: First, the demolition of the Convention Center's West Hall, and, second, for Los Angeles to secure an NFL team.

The three final designs come from the firms Gensler (they did the Ritz-Carlton tower at LA Live), HKS (Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, and recent renovations to Dodger Stadium), and HNTB (the proposed new 49ers facility in San Francisco). AEG says they will make their final decision in January.

Take a look at the three proposals. Which one would you prefer be added to our landscape?
